• When Does Future Work Self Predict Work Engagement: the Boundary Conditions of Person-Vocation Fit and Trust in Supervisor
  • Abstract Work engagement is a crucial positive psychological construct related to mental health. However, current self-directed and boundaryless career trend brings unprecedented challenges for organizations to foster employee engagement using traditional means. From an integrative perspective of the engagement theory and the career boundaryless theory, we built a model to test the moderating effect of person-vocation fit and trust in supervisor on the relationship between future work self and work engagement. After conducting a two-wave study with a sample of 231 employees, we found that future work-self was positively related to work engagement; and both person-vocation fit and trust in supervisor… More

  • Influence of Leaders’ Loneliness on Voice-Taking: The Role of Social SelfEfficacy and Performance Pressure
  • Abstract This paper attempts to unlock how and when leaders’ loneliness influences their voice-taking behavior in the workplace by integrating the regulatory loop model of loneliness and the affect theory of social exchange. Through collecting a daily diary study of 87 paired leader-follower samples from two electronics industry companies based in Guangzhou, China, this study finds that (1) leaders’ loneliness has a significant negative impact on social self-efficacy and voice-taking behavior; (2) leaders’ social self-efficacy mediates the relationship between their loneliness and voice-taking behavior; (3) performance pressure moderates the relationship between leaders’ loneliness and voice-taking behavior; and, (4) the indirect effect… More

  • How Does Proactive Personality Promote Affective Well-Being? A Chained Mediation Model
  • Abstract Based on social cognitive career theory, this research examined a chained mediation model for the relations between proactive personality, career success criteria clarity, career decision-making self-efficacy and affective wellbeing. A two-wave survey study was conducted among Chinese graduating students (N = 235). The results showed that proactive personality (measured at time 1), career success criteria clarity (measured at time 1), and career decisionmaking self-efficacy (measured at time 2) positively related to affective well-being respectively. In addition, the results further revealed that proactive personality was positively related to career success criteria clarity, which further predicted affective well-being through the full mediation… More

  • Bridging the Gap between Ethical Climate and Nurses’ Service Behaviors: the Critical Role of Professional Well-Being
  • Abstract Although the importance of nurses’ service behaviors has been increasingly emphasized, few studies accounted for how organizational or individual antecedents affect nurses’ psychological processes to implement service behaviors. Additionally, they mainly focused on the one side of roleprescribed service behavior and ignored the effect on extra-role service behavior. This study seeks to explore the relationship between ethical climate and nurses’ service behaviors from a comparative view, of the role-prescribed and extra-role service behavior and examine the mediating effect of nurses’ professional wellbeing (as characterized by positive attitudes toward work, specifically harmonious work passion and obsessive work passion). Survey data from… More

  • Cognitive Intervention on the Flashback of Traumatic Event: Based on the Dual Representation Theory of PTSD
  • Abstract Flashback, related to the traumatic event, is a prominent symptom of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The dual representation theory (DRT) of PTSD emphasizes that the weakened contextual representation (C-rep), the enhanced sensory representation (S-rep) and the loss of connection between C-rep and S-rep play an important role in the formation and retrieval of flashback. DRT proposes that cognitive intervention tasks which inhibit S-rep or enhance C-rep can reduce flashbacks. And many studies have proved this theoretical hypothesis. In the future, simulation intervention studies should continue to strengthen, some clinical application studies should also be appropriately carried out. Besides, future researchers… More
